ATF4 Sandringham Road Footpath Widening

Closed 6 Oct 2023

Opened 20 Sep 2023


Stockport Council have successfully bid for funding from Active Travel England to progress the design and implementation of providing and improving an existing pedestrian route which travels between Ladybridge Road, along Ladybrook Valley to meet with Bramhall Park Road and upgrade this for access by pedestrians and cyclists. 

As part of the funding, it has also been identified the existing footpath between Sandringham Road and Twining Brook Road in Cheadle Hulme, which stretches across the playing fields, is substandard and requires widening to meet the needs of existing and new users.


To further enhance the existing walking and cycling connections throughout Cheadle Hulme, it is proposed to improve the footpath which links between Sandringham Road and Twining Brook Road. The following measures are proposed, and these are shown on Dwg No. F-274-004, described below:

  • Widening and resurfacing the existing shared use path to 3m.
  • Provision of additional LED lighting columns along the route.
  • Dropped kerb access for cyclists at the entrance to the path from Sandringham Road.
  • Provision of bollards spaced 1.5m apart to prevent access from unauthorised vehicles, whilst maintaining access for pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair users and pushchairs at the entrance to the path.
  • Provision of an access protection marking across the dropped kerb on Sandringham Road to prevent access to the path being blocked.
